I'm also really surprised and a bit disappointed that Propaganda isn't getting a proper video.

I´m ready to rate the album (first impressions):

Algorithm - 9/10 - 2nd best song of the album... after Algorithm Alternate Reality Version

The Dark Side - 9/10 - Great Vibe, and the perfect song to follow Algorithm

Pressure - 7/10 - If it wasnt for that Chorus (that I still dont really like...) it would be a top song

Propaganda - 8/10 - my new guilty pleasure...

Break It To Me - 6/10 - Still unsure about this one, sounds a lot like The Voidz

Something Human - 2/10 - Worse song on the album, really can´t listen to it.

Thought Contagion - 6/10 - Average. Plus I can only hear "F*cking Satan" instead of Thought Contagion

Get Up and Fight - 6/10 - Average , but need to listen better.

Blockades - 7/10 - Muse covering Muse

Dig Down - 6/10 - Okayish - but the Gospel version works better for me.

The Void - 9/10 - This is a great one. If someone say it´s not... "They´re wrong"
__

Algorithm (Alternate Reality Version) - 10/10 - Best song in the last 5 Years of Muse

The Dark Side (Alternate Reality Version) - 9/10 - Quite cool this version as well

Pressure (ft. UCLA Bruin Marching Band) - 5/10 - Pointless

Propaganda (Acoustic) - 8/10 - As good as the original

Break It To Me (Sam de Jong Remix) - 3/10 - Pointless

Something Human (Acoustic) - 6/10 - Much much much better than the original. This one I can listen to.

Thought Contagion (Live) - 5/10 - Meh

Dig Down (Acoustic Gospel Version) - 7/10 - Quite cool

The Void (Acoustic) - 9/10 - As good as the original

The Dark Side (Alternate Reality Instrumental) - 9/10 - Just great

__

Album (so far) 7/10. Better than Drones for sure.

BITM as a whole is obvs amazing but the chorus might be one of my fave things they’ve ever done. So unexpected within the song, soft, subtle little details, gorg vocals, then that a m a z i n g pitch shifting.

Instrumentally, it’s right up there as one of the best in their discography for me. Hard to say that w/ lyrics just ‘cos my absolute faves like my top 10 usually need some sort of emtional connection to stick up there. If Assassin, TAB and COD can though, maybe there’s a chance in the future.

GUAF is one of two songs that has lyric video with Propaganda....
Surprising eh... Or they plan to release both of these songs as singles in the future?

EDIT : GUAF lyric video is on youtube

Interesting to see some people slagging off the lyrics. I think it’s at least on par with TR, if not better.

Also surprised at how many people are initially so weirded out by BITM that they either can’t rate it or say it’s not for them, before it usually grows instantly brilliant for me

Saddens me a smidge to see how some are treating GUAF, considering the subject matter. I get that I’m in the minority by really liking it and it’s fine if it’s other people’s least favourite but some of it’s ‘reviews’ are a bit....blunt, to say the least. Like, you can say a song’s not for you without calling one about a close family member w/ cancer ‘embarrassing’.

I've just heard it... and I actually quite like it. I'm well aware I'm in the minority though

The Void has yet to make an appearance and that song really does deserve a proper production.

Just heard it all the way through, and I am very impressed! From the singles I already loved Thought Contagion, Something Human and Pressure.

Algorithm surely has to open their gigs now, it's incredible. Reminded me a bit of NIN at the start.

Propaganda is going to take a few listens to appreciate I think...

Break It To Me is another highlight - it's like sexy Korn or something. Love the guitar work.

Get Up And Fight... now I'm a sucker for pop with a hook, so I actually enjoyed it! Nowhere near as bad as I expected, and the subject matter gives it a whole other dimension.

Blockades is Muse by numbers. Good, but not mind blowing.

The Void though, brilliant. Great closer.

I love the Alternate Reality versions of all the songs too, as well as acoustic Something Human.

Muse have really surprised me here. I went in with low expectations until the leak happened and the majority raved about it, and I'm glad I agree with the majority. An enjoyable record.

Okay second full listen through (if you don't count falling asleep to it last night) going now.

A couple things I'm already sure of:
-Matt sounds almost like he's ten years younger here. A little less intense than he actually used to be, but a shine is back in his voice that was missing from much of Drones.

-The lyrics across the board are the best since TR. I'm not saying it's poetry, but I am saying these are the lyrics I really want from Muse, not so much what we got on Drones.

-There's such a sense of fun and willingness to put anything into a song. But it's not in a really on the nose, shoehorned kind of way like on much of T2L. It's somewhere between that and BH&R in terms of just trying anything once but really making something good out of it. I love this. It was sorely missed on Drones.

-Is it just me, or is there a surprising sense of...patience? subtlety? Not on all the cuts really. But songs like Algorithms, The Void, Propaganda (minus the hook), Break It To Me just seem like incredibly tight and well controlled compositions. I feel like in some weird way this is Muse's most minimalistic album. I'm being hit with candy coated explosions of wildly different sounds, but they've been carefully organized to hit exactly where they're most effective and don't stray beyond that point.

-My major con tho...there's a real lack of flow between many of the cuts. This seems incredibly intentional, so I'll not lament it too much, but it does take me out of the album experience a little bit when the transitions are so...shuffle like.

Agree w/ all this, sums up a broad amount of my thoughts too

...apart from the flow I think it flows really well, one of the few albums (if not the only one) where I wouldn’t change anything round
